I like you guys confidence. Yesterday, the Spurs were definitely the benefactor of a few favorable calls that factored into the outcome of the game, but that's always the case when we bumped heads (pun intended). PHX will bounce back Tuesday. This series is far from over!

It'll bring tears of joy if an 8th seeded team blasted the Spurs in the 1st round. I don't think they'll ever be the same again.

The Suns are a class orginization and play with heart and integrity.The only thing i have seen from the Spurs in the last 3 years of playoff games is,flopping, crying, and dirty play. When they feel threatened they call on there HIT men Ginobili,Bowin & Horry, or the crybaby (I never do anything wrong)Duncan or Parker (the grabber).It seemed that for the last 3 years during the playoffs that the Suns were playing against a team with 6 or 7 players on the floor. Guess I was right (check the headlines)..If the suns could ever get fair play (without the brass knuckles and with fair officiating) the Spurs would not be able to compete. They should replace coach Popavich with Sheriff Joe.

You can tell the last guy that posted is from Arizona. The only crying I have heard is from Suns fans because they continually get beat down by the Spurs. Basketball is a physically sport and anyone who can't take it, should stick to watching the golf channel (pansies). The difference between the Suns, Spurs, and even the Mavs is that when the playoffs come around, the Suns and Mavs fold under pressure while the Spurs always get it together and play like a true team. And by the way Bob from AZ, start thinking of new lame excuses after the Spurs take another championship in '08.

Seriously cowboy, why are Spurs fans not admitting the "generous calls" they got in this whole series? As a Patriots fan, I admit that the first title is cheap, Brady clearly fumbled that ball. Spurs fans were always viewed the same way as their team, classy, team oriented, I always rooted for you guys against the Lakers, but what happened? Spurs fans say Suns fans are whiners, but Spurs fans are whining about the Suns whining!(That probably doesn't make any sense) The Spurs got screwed as much as the Suns cause 99% of the country thinks their title was dirty...

Nine-nine percent!! Wow, by your stats I can’t believe that I’m the "only" Spurs fan that thinks the title was legit? As for the generosity of the referees, just as you or any other fan, I’m just a fan of the sport and have nothing to do with calling the games (except in the comforts of my own home), but if generosity is what people are calling it, I’d be stupid not to take it, after all it made me lots of money. As many games that the Spurs have won in recent years, they’ve also lost others because of bad calls or league rules, trust me, we Spur fans have had our share of ups and downs too. You might remember a couple of years ago when during the playoffs when the Los Angles Lakers beat the Spurs in the fourth quarter at the sound of the buzzard? After the replay was televised it clearly showed that Derek Fisher had released the ball after time had expired but because the Lakers had ran off the court into the locker room the referees didn’t feel compelled to call the team back, yeah call it a bad or in your case generosity, yet you didn’t see Spurs fans dwelling over it for months. What about last year? How often does the number one and number two seats play against each other in the second round of the playoffs? For your information, I’m not whining, I’m just tired of hearing the negativity that’s being said about the San Antonio Spurs!! Like it or not, they are the World Champions. I understand that everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion however let’s not dwell on it all throughout the entire off season……………

Speaking of football, Athlon Sports magazine (Pro Football) has predicted my Dallas Cowboys against your New England Patriots for Super Bowl XLII in Glendale, Arizona. I’ll take the Boys for a “C” note!!

YEah I remember that game, I thought Fisher didn't get it off either. The worst I ever saw though, was game 6 Kings and Lakers, they called more fouls on the Kings in the 4th quarter, than they did on the Lakers the entire game... disgraceful. Of course that was the Kobe and Shaq era, and god forbid the Lakers didn't make a final. As a fan, I think it's appaling.

We'll see about that XLII matchup! You think Romo will improve from last year, or suffer a sophomore jinx?

The way I see it, last year the Dallas Cowboys were one botched field goal away from going to the conference finals. Would they have beaten the Chicago Bears (we’ll never know)? But for the sake of “what if” let’s just say they made it all the way to the Super Bowl, the only team standing between them and the championship would have been the Indianapolis Colts and if I remember correctly the Cowboys were the first team and only one of few teams that beat the Colts during the regular season. Things that make you go hhhuuummm!!

As for calling Tony Romo a sophomore, I won’t consider calling him that because he’s been a Cowboy for almost five seasons now; the word I would use to define Romo would be “inexperienced.” To answer your question, yes, my expectations of Romo are very high and honestly I do believe he will excel, he’s a hard-worker with something to prove; contract wise he needs a good season so that he can demand the big bucks. According to what I’ve read, he’s been working hard at learning the new playbook and should be able to perform well. Cowboys have a new coach, with a new attitude and we even have a new state of the art stadium being built to be ready by 2008. I believe the league is excited too, they awarded the Boys with something like nine nationally televised games for the season, even ESPN is talking highly about the Boys and magazine articles such as Athlon Sports are predicting them to go to the Super Bowl, so as a Cowboys fan I’m certainly very excited and optimistic about the upcoming season.

Other than the Bears (who may have a top 20 QB) and Saints,(maybe the Seahawks) they should have no major obstacles. Of course it all comes down to injuries. I don't know much about the NFC East except the Giants should be a joke, and the Eagles should be decent, and the Skins improved, but not greatly. I got the Cowboys going either 4-2 or 5-1 in that division.

I agree, I think they could have beaten the Colts last year, but Romo needs to be consistent all year, and they can't lose to Detroit(I may be wrong on that) and Philly when the division is on the line (which I think they did?). They're on the cusp, should be a great year.

The NFC East was once the most dominant Division in the NFL I attribute this to the coaches, Tom Landry, George Allan, Buddy Ryan, and Bill Parcells. With the exception of maybe Big Bill the rest of the guys actually hated each other and of course that hatrat carried over to the players and the rivalry was on. If I’m not mistaken, the NFC East is the only Division in which all the teams have made "Super Bowl" appearances. The Washington Redskins have won three Super Bowl championships and have made 14 playoff appearances since 1971 thus making them one of the NFL's most dominant teams of the past quarter century. You have the Cowboys who became the first team in NFL history to win 3 Super Bowls in a 4 years span (it probably would have been 5 but Jerry Jones went nutso and fired Jimmy Johnson, anyway the feat has only been matched once since, by your New England Patriots), however the Cowboys are the only team that have appeared in the Super Bowl a record 8 times. The New York Giants have appeared in a couple of Super Bowls and won one, and the Philadelphia Eagles have appeared in 2 Super Bowls and yet to win one. Ah, those were the days!!

Still a good division today, 3 playoff teams last year (although the Giants got a ton of help to get in) the whole NFC gets treated like JV, but that's how it was for the AFC from '83-96 or so. That being said, NFC teams have been competitive in the bowl. Most top 5 predictions have 4 teams from the AFC from media I've seen. Right about the Skins and Boys (3 and 5?), the Giants actually won 2, so that's 10 out of 41. That's gotta be the lead.

Pats won 3, Dolphins, 1 or 2? Jets 1, Bills 0

AFC North has.. Steelers 5? Ravens 1, Bengals 0, Browns 0

NFC West... 49ers 5?, Rams 1, Cards Yeah right, Seahawks 0

Yeah NFC East wins that contest hands down.
